At the End of a Long Road

Four years of working, reading, writing, stretching and when it's all said and done we g0t an ornately adorned two dimensional object commemorating the accomplishment (and it has my awesome husband's name on it). SWEET! But really, the knowledge both of us learned over the past four years is invaluable. What a journey!
It makes me think of Psalm 23 "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of DEATH I will fear no evil for you are with me" maybe I'm slightly over exaggerating but it was a ride for sure. There were times where we thought of Peter's response to Jesus when he said "where else would I go?" when limits were tested and we felt so weary. On the other side of the red sea we both feel so amazed by God's beauty and power and mystery. We didn't get crushed by the waves of education but rather, by his grace, were able to put one foot in front of the other and now we can look back and feel gratitude. Now our prayer is that we REMEMBER what he's done for us and trust him in the journey that follows.
